This is a beautiful oval flame mahogany and crossbanded replica of Robert Jupe's flame mahogany extending dining table with a matching set of twelve Bar Back dining chairs, dating from the second half of the 20th century.
The flame mahogany veneers on the top have been arranged so as to give a striking sunburst effect and it is finished off by the elegant goncalo alves, ebony and birds eye maple crossbanding on the outside edge.
The brass capstan action rotating four segments to accommodate four additional leaves, over a stunning substantial central pillar with four outset turned columns, raised on an incurved decorative platform with brass capped block feet that gives this table it's superb stability.
The table can seat twelve when extended and eight when the top is retracted. It comes complete with a freestanding, lockable, lancet topped baize lined leaf cabinet to store the leaves when they are not required.
The fantastic Vintage English made set of 12 Regency Revival dining chairs, have been masterfully crafted in beautiful solid mahogany.
The set comprises twelve side chairs all of which feature an attractive swag back design and 'drop in' seats that have been upholstered in a cream damask fabric.
An oval table is the perfect choice for those who have limited space in their dining room. The oval shape will open up your floor space allowing guests to easily walk around your room. It is a great round table substitute if your space is slightly off square and on the smaller size.
This fascinating table illustrates all the very best elements of English cabinet-making combined with the remarkable burst of inventiveness of the Industrial Revolution. It was not until John Johnstone and Robert Jupe patented their ingenious design in March 1835 for an expanding round table,that round dining tables, which had suffered from the problem of not offering flexibility of seating, could compete with the established rectangular extending dining tables.
In excellent condition having been beautifully cleaned, polished waxed and the chairs reupholstered in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
